Great area which has a vibrant feel to it. It also feels very safe compared to other Chinatowns. Lots of shops selling interesting souvenirs. Also lots of eateries which do various interesting Chinese meals

Vibrant Street with the Sri Mariamman Temple on the corner with South Bridge Road. The Chinese Heritage Centre was closed for interior redevelopment, disappointing for us as we have previously enjoyed the information available there on the early Chinese settlement. the street has had a chequered history, a little infamy at times, but became more respectable when the shophouses ceased trading and became shops as are there presently. The structures were retained and preserved and the street included when the area was gazetted a historic district. We spent some time here browsing and haggling and departed width more souvenirs and giftware than necessary.

One of the main streets in Chinatown. There are many shops, restaurants cafés and coffee shops in addition to the traditional Chinese hawker stall. On the corner is the Indian Hindu Temple, which is a must see. Good for a stroll to see interesting and sometimes unusual things.

Located in the Outram neighborhood, the preserved shophouses are worth the peek. Wandering is a must to seek the nook and crannies of this area.

We had a walk along this street as we were in the area. The place has a lot of shops, restaurants etc and the buildings look good. The place can get very busy with people

Pagoda street is a fun experience for just wandering around. The street is always lively, there’s always something to see and even if you’ve been there several times before, there’s always something new. Great place for photographs and for eating exceptional food. Definitely worth a visit.

Pagoda Street got its name due to the majestic gopuram (grand tower) at the Sri Mariamman Temple's entrance. Chinatown MRT exit A opens to Pagoda Steet.
Most of the shophouses here were built around 1843 and some were holding stations for coolies. One well-known firm for the coolie trade here was Kwong Hup Yuen at 37 Pagoda Street. This street is also known for its opium dens to serve the coolies. There is a heritage marker at 34 Pagoda Street as it was formerly an opium den.
The Chinatown Heritage Centre (No. 48) is strongly recommended to understand the lives of tenants in an authentically conserved shophouse.
At the back alley of No 83 is a mural by Yip Yew Chong titled "Mid-Autumn Festival".

For us this was the best place to shop. I got a 2 suits here, my wife found some black pearls and of course we found plenty of trinkets and souvenirs. However it is not all shopping. This is an historic merchants district in Chinatown and the architecture is one of the best things about this attraction. In addition you can find places to eat and a Hindu temple to visit with Buddhist temples and mosque nearby. In the end this is the Heart of Chinatown in Singapore.
